Known as Red Rock Country, Sedona rests between canyons, mountains and national forest. While hiking the nature trails is a must, active visitors can choose from horseback riding, golf, tennis, rock climbing, fishing, skiing, rafting or biking in the breath-taking natural setting.

This romantic small town is renowned for its luxury resorts, spas, and shopping. Stay in one of a hundred hotels, cabins, campsites or bed and breakfasts, relax in one of the top destination spas in the world, and shop locally for antiques, food or art. Visitors will also indulge in highly acclaimed dining and local wine from the Verde Valley, where tours and tastings nicely compliment a trip.

Choose from a wide variety of tours and attractions including local parks, sanctuaries, and museums via jeeps, ATVs, hummers, bikes or Segways. Beyond ground tours, take in the aerial view from a hot air balloon, helicopter or airplane. From any angle, don’t miss the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Cathedral Rock and Crescent Moon Ranch, some of enchanting and magical elements of the landscape.

With its picture-perfect backdrop as muse, Sedona hosts over a dozen art galleries and a myriad of art events. From painting and sculpture to glasswork and jewelry, art enthusiasts can fill a day shopping and viewing. The Sedona Arts Festival showcases nationally recognized artists in every field each year in August, and the town hosts seasonal craft shows. Find what else there is to discover in Sedona’s reviews.

I visit Sedona every time I drive from Denver to Phoenix to visit my family. I feel exhilarated every time I see those beautiful red rocks. It's like I've come to the place my spirit calls home, even though I have never lived there. You really have to see it to appreciate it.
